Lehigh Acres, Fla.-Lee County deputies are looking for a man who allegedly exposed himself to a teenage girl and then groped her.

According to an incident report, the teenager was walking to a bus stop on Haviland Avenue when a man suddenly approached her and exposed his genitals.

The sheriff's office says the man masturbated in front of the teen and touched her chest and genital area.

"I think it's scary because I wake up early every morning and walk to school," said Biverlin Eicmond, a high school student who lives in the same neighborhood where the deputies say the man groped another girl's private parts.

Deputies say the suspect also used vile and provocative language and asked the teen if she would 'do it' for money.

Luckily the girl got away unharmed.

"She ran away, [and] kinda caused a scene. [She] took off and went to a safe place," said John Sheehan, a spokesman for the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

Latosha Burns lives in this area and often takes her four kids for walks.

"It's disgusting to me. They need to get him off the streets," said Burns.

The suspect is described as a white male, 25 to 35 years old,with short dark brown hair. He is 6 feet tall, somewhat stocky with muscular arms and a little chubby in the stomach area.

Anyone with information on this sex offender is asked to call the Lee County Sheriff's Office at 239-477-1000.
